As of early August it appears that the schools will remain closed until January 2021.  The community is still struggling with lower incomes than normal due to COVID, and have an extra burden of feeding students who would have normally been fed at their boarding school, which are now closed.  In addition, the Initiative also rented a room for 3 of the boarding students because there is no place on the floor at home where they would normally sleep due to other siblings sleeping there. Therefore, further food and rent assistance will be required to tie these families over until the COVID-19 crisis is over.
